and using bulk import import all of your files to this folder. Link for bulk import

Re: Bulk metadata update in alfresco community 5.1.f

please enter your folder location where all files exists in your system like

Import directory:"E:\Backup Folder\all previous data\New folder"

and go to alfresco repository and find the folder where you wanted to upload your files get the noderef  of that folder and enter it in example NodeRef: workspace://SpacesStore/5474a3c8-397e-4ab2-b208-a4a446790801

and initiate bulk import
